SPCC Blog Hop - Going Green (Galore)

and Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White!!!
Welcome to SPCC's first ever blog hop! If you just happened upon my blog today, the blog hop starts at SPCC so go there to begin. You should have arrived here from Stephanie's blog.
Scrapbook goodies are packaged in super cute boxes, jars, bags pillow boxes and tins. And sometimes so cute it is impossible to throw it away! So what is a girl armed with scissors, glue, and paper to do? Well make it useful again of course (and if at all possible cuter than it was before!).
I took this Prima Embellie box :
And made a shadow box:
 
I trimmed the squres of pattern paper to fit in each box, inked it and glued inside. The ribbon was glued on the outer frame - mainly because it was a little dinged up to the fact it has been in my possession for two years! The glass front slides on and off so I can fill it with pretties!
  • Patterned Papers and Sticker: October Afternoon
  • Ribbon: Hobby Lobby
Thanks so much for hopping today. I hope you enjoy your trip. Your next stop is: Deanne's blog.


Have a blessed day!
